Ikeja, Onigbongbo Oba Tasks Lagos Govt. on Infrastructure

The traditional ruler of Onigbongbo in Ikeja, Lagos, Oba Munirudin Yusuf, on Thursday urged the state government to embark on the development of infrastructure.

Yusuf told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the Onigbongbo community was counting on government to erect a pedestrian bridge in the Jesu-Oyingbo and Mobil Filling Station area of Ikeja.

He said this was to allow students and pupils use the bridge instead of crossing the ever busy express way.

The monarch said that the community also needed to fix the street lights on Palace Road and Ibadiaran Street leading to Olajide Benson Street.
“We need the streetlights to curb the excesses of hoodlums within the community and to reduce crime rate.
 “Parents keep disturbing me as regards the pedestrian bridge; they want it so that their children can make use of it instead of crossing the express way.

“With the pedestrian bridge, accident rates will be reduced.

“This is a reminder for the Lagos State Government that has made the promise to fix these aforementioned infrastructure since 2011 elections.

“The same promise was made in the 2015 elections and has not been fulfilled.

“I want to draw the attention of Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode to my community so that we will not be left out in his commendable work in Lagos State,’’ he said.
